Over the past three years, Villages NW has worked tirelessly to organize neighborhood residents into planning groups and now has SIX grassroots Villages in development across the Portland metro-area—three in Multnomah County, two in Washington County and one in Clackamas County—and we’re not done yet!
We also helped our first Portland-metro Village launch: Eastside PDX Village is now accepting members, seeking volunteers, and vetting vendors.
Our mission is to enable every local resident who wants to remain in the home and neighborhood they love to have a Village to support them.
